Quote of the Day I - Athens on the Lake Edition

Pension payments to Chicago public union employees have become so high that today all the property taxes paid by the households of Chicago go exclusively to pensions. The operating expenses are paid by additional taxes on things from packs of cigarettes, to gasoline, sales tax, and cable TV bills. Given these facts about how Chicago's property taxes are used, it's not surprising that its new Republican governor wants to freeze property taxes to rescue the middle class's paychecks from Democrats.

Quote of the Day II

And to think back in the late '70s, we all assumed [Roger] Waters was being ironic when he portrayed a totalitarian anti-Semitic rock star in The Wall.

-- Ed Driscoll

Wisconsin Supreme Court: Prosecutor Punished Speech With Paramilitary-Style Home Invasions

Read the WI Supreme Court decision quotes that Ungrateful Loaf posted here. The court is basically inviting the victims to sue and file misconduct claims with the state bar against the prosecutors involved.

The Words 'Husband', 'Wife' Being Removed From Federal Statutes, Soon to Become Offensive

Mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters. But there were also husbands, wives, lovers. There were also monogamy and romance.

"Though you probably don't know what those are," said Mustapha Mond.

They shook their heads.

Family, monogamy, romance. Everywhere exclusiveness, a narrow channelling of impulse and energy.

"But every one belongs to every one else," he concluded, citing the hypnopaedic proverb.

The students nodded, emphatically agreeing with a statement which upwards of sixty-two thousand repetitions in the dark had made them accept, not merely as true, but as axiomatic, self-evident, utterly indisputable.

The Deep Green Resistance Is At War With You

You have been warned even if you probably haven't even noticed.

The third lady to speak, the one with all-natural, not-at-all-technological adult braces, is Ms Lierre Keith, a former radical vegan and now self-described "gender abolitionist" whose strange mental adventures have previously entertained us. Ms Keith and her associates wish to wage "decisive ecological warfare" against. well, the rest of us, and to "disrupt and dismantle industrial civilisation," with "complete economic collapse" as the path to salvation. When not signalling their intellectual wattage by calling for the "abolition" of masculinity and "whiteness," and the "abolition" of the United States, "an illegitimate settler nation," Deep Green Resistance very much like the idea of "sabotaging infrastructure" and cutting power lines, thereby leaving tens of thousands of people without light and heat. Such measures would, apparently, encourage "class consciousness." Elderly people in remote locations would no doubt embrace the finer points of revolutionary eco-socialism as they shivered in the dark and the feeling left their limbs.

Their end goal? Merely taking us back to the glory days of the Pliocene era.

Let's do what we did before, which worked. We didn't destroy the planet for those first four million years. we actually participated.

And Tim Blair adds:

The extreme green movement is nudging ever closer to a form of fascism," Blair adds. "There is not much difference between words once deployed in the service of preserving a master race and words now deployed in the service of preserving a master planet.

Old Rocker Complains About New Technology, Clouds

You see Neil Young thinks that streaming technology simply can't capture the delicate nuances of his music and so it sucks.

"It's about sound quality. I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music."

But you know what is good enough to listen to his music with? AM radio and 8-track tapes that's what.

"AM radio kicked streaming's ass. Analog cassettes and 8 tracks also kicked streaming's ass, and absolutely rocked compared to streaming,"

He then tied an onion to his belt which was the style at the time when AM music radio ruled.
